- Day 4 Machu Picchu
It is time for the highlight of the tour, the forgotten city of the Incas and one of the New Seven Wonders of the World – Machu Picchu. You wake up early in the morning and take the bus up to Machu Picchu to be able to enjoy the sunrise. Then it is time for your 2 hours tour. After the tour you will have some free time to explore the ruins and take more photos. A popular alternative is to climb the mountain next to Machu Picchu; Huayna Picchu (2 hours). It is quite tough but if you reach the top you will have a spectacular view over Machu Picchu and the surroundings. In the afternoon you take the train back to Cusco. You are picked up and transferred to your hotel.
